SHELTER COMPLETED

This shelter took a long time to complete because all the materials were either donated,  or salvaged from skips. All the work was also done by volunteers in their spare time.

Rain water is harvested from its roof, and the fireplace will soon be installed to keep us warm and dry in the winter months.

PIGS’ PROGRESS

After exactly 4 weeks in their enclosure, these 2 rare breed ‘Gloucester Old Spot’ piglets have put on weight and begun to transform the area, which will be ready for growing vegetables in the spring. Binky and Babe have saved me hours of back breaking work. Note how the grass on one side of the fence continues to grow, while on the other side the soil is being turned over.

HOUSE FOR PIGS

          Building house for pigs……cost:£0.00……with help from Rajbir Singh

Pigs are the most natural way to turn over virgin ground……they will eat everything above and under the ground, turning the soil over as they go, and of course adding their own fertiliser. This will be their home for the next few months, and after they are moved on in the spring, the area will be transformed into a vegetable garden.10671302_858707990829918_1123422796498173059_n
